The Leicester City winger is being heavily linked with a move to the Gunners this summer – and Wenger did nothing to deny the story when asked about it last night.
As far as we know there has been no deal struck and Claudio Ranieri has been clear stating that the Algerian winger’s future is at the King Power Stadium.
But he might not have anything to worry about if left wing rival Oxlade-Chamberlain keeps turning in strong performances in pre-season.
He scored a beauty in the 1-1 draw with Lens earlier this month and has followed that up with a great solo effort against Chivas Guadalajara this morning.
It was a moment of top quality from the English youngster, and gave a rare glimpse of what he’s capable of when he’s not nursing an injury.
Fans have been quick to share their delight at the Ox show – and many are prepared to forget all about Mahrez if they were to have a fit and firing Oxlade-Chamberlain at their disposal:
Of course, some supporters may be joking – as Oxlade-Chamberlain has found injuries easy to come by over recent seasons.
But it is true that he could be an influential player for Arsenal if he is somehow able to stay fit for a consistent period of time.
